    i try to make it work on WAMP .

    This is the folder root:

    In it , all the files dowloaded:

    Xen Files.PNG

    But it says that it can´t find the DNS :

    That sounds like a general WAMP installation/access problem. I'd just create a simple test HTML file and get access to that working. You might need to get some guidance from the WAMP project developers in case there are things you need to do with, for example, firewalls.

    Thanks for the support ...But not enough knowledge to manage your "guidance" ;)

    The point Mike is making is it's a WAMP/Windows issue, not XF.

    You first need to get your localhost "server" working before you can install XF.

    I don't use WAMP so I can't help.

    The WAMP support forum may be the best place.

    Don't use WAMP is my advice. It's a pain in the ass.

    Try Vagrant.

    Generally speaking, if someone can't get wamp working they likely will have even more issues getting Vagrant to work.

    WAMP has issues with no explanation for no reason. I was having random error after error. In comparison, vagrant requires no work to get working and doesn't ever bail on you

    Do the data and internal_data directories exist in your xenforo directory?
